ECON-416 Market Design by Prof. Ian Gale
Market design studies how the allocation of resources can be improved when market failures occur. The 2012 Nobel Prize was awarded to Al Roth and Lloyd Shapley for their work on market design. The reach of market design has grown to include the assignment of students to public schools, medical residents to hospitals, and operating licenses to telecommunications companies. It also informs the design of internet auctions and financial markets.
